AXEL RUDI PELL – Diamonds Unlocked I [+12 0dayrox extras]

After the recent, second AXEL RUDI PELL covers album, as requested by many, here’s the first “Diamonds Unlocked I “released in 2007 including versions from Kiss, Michael Bolton, Montrose, etc. with the great Johnny Gioeli at the mic.
And as 0dayrox extra we added all (12 songs) covers done by AXEL RUDI PELL Band all over their career, including Rob Rock and Jeff Scott Soto on lead vocals.
If there is a rock musician from Germany who is extremely respected about his ability to never disappoints us, that’s certainly Mr. Axel Rudi Pell. And this cover album “Diamonds Unlocked” isn’t an exception but it’s also really nice to listen to the Metal versions of those really eclectics songs… Axel Rudi Pell rocks no doubt…

AXEL RUDI PELL – Diamonds Unlocked II (2021)

German hard rock guitar wizard AXEL RUDI PELL is ready to present “Diamonds Unlocked II”, set for release on July 30th 2021 on Steamhammer/SPV. The successor to last year’s top 5 album “Sign Of The Times” is the follow-up to his 2007 cover recording “Diamonds Unlocked”.
Pell’s carefully considered decision not to release brand-new original material for the first time in almost 15 years is mainly based on the ongoing pandemic and current restrictions on live concerts. The guitarist explains that “it makes no sense at all to put out new songs that we will not be able to perform live.”
But let me tell you that “Diamonds Unlocked II” will not disappoint you… they recorded here a collection of classic songs by Sammy Hagar, Rainbow, Tony Carey, and even a Paul Anka (!) cover, all metallized / hard rockin’ in the ARP fashion.
Johnny Gioeli can sing anything, and he shines all over ‘There’s Only One Way to Rock’, ‘Lady of the Lake’, ‘Room with a View’, etc…
